SureScreen wins award for outstanding achievement

SureScreen Diagnostics' boundary-pushing work in Covid testing has been recognised at the annual Medilink Midlands Business Awards.

Derby-based SureScreen won the Outstanding Achievement Award for its "significant or vital impact on the community or market."

It was among six life-science companies from the East Midlands which won awards at a ceremony seen by more than 130 business people online.

The UK government has secured from SureScreen tens of millions of rapid coronavirus tests which were the first British tests to be validated in the laboratory by Public Health England.

Its antibody and antigen tests for Covid-19 have also been exported to 53 countries and dependencies across the world.

They have been ordered by governments, the health industry, private businesses and have helped top-level sports such as football, rugby and snooker to go ahead in safety.

Orders continue to flow in from around the world and SureScreen is now accepted as one of the key players on the global Covid-19 rapid test market and has recently expanded into new premises at Sherwood Business Park, with plans for 1,000 additional jobs.

Director David Cambell said: "We are delighted to have been given the prestigious Medilink award for Outstanding Achievement.

"It is a great boost for our team who havededicated themselves to producing the best possible tests for Covid-19.

"A year ago, we could not have imagined the journey we have been on with such quick expansion, but we are so happy we can help people during these difficult times.

"Our mission is unchanged- we want to use quality diagnostics to catch issues early and prevent serious issues before they occur, usingthe best scientific answer at the lowest practicable price.

"We will continue to develop new and innovativetests, and we foresee a continued need for rapid testing going forward, both to help with the fight against covid and in other healthcare areas, and we have ramped up production accordingly."



SureScreen has now been shortlisted for the Medilink UK Healthcare Business Awards on October 1, with the chance to be crowned a national winner.
